Bob Miller can’t dance…he can’t run…he can’t even play baseball for ME/CFS – he’s not strong enough for that but he can fall, and May 12th, ME/CFS International Day, he’s going to fall a long way, very quickly, to raise money for ME/CFS research.


Thumbs up indeed…..Bob Miller will be skydiving to support ME/CFS Research on May 12th

It’s been a busy couple of months for Bob.  He  presented at the FDA Stakeholder’s meeting (4 days recovery), went on a 2-week fast for Ampligen (several weeks recovery) and now he’s going to fall about $13,000 feet – no muscle exertion required, just sheer guts  – to draw attention to and raise money for chronic fatigue syndrome research.  Is he the Evel Knievel of ME/CFS advocacy or what?

A No ‘Crash’ Day

Bob’s going to bail out of an airplane (with a parachute) at about 13,000 feet from the Parachute Center in Lodi, Ca. So far as we know they haven’t lost anyone yet (although..hmmm… they don’t explicitly say so….)

People with ME/CFS will be doing alot of things come May 12th  (I may catch a movie :))  but only one, I venture to say, will be skydiving for ME/CFS.


Who with ME/CFS skydives? Well, one person does – if the cause is right.

Why is Bob doing this? Because he knows that cutting-edge research is the answer to this disorder and somehow, at  least in my mind cutting-edge research and extreme sports are natural partners; both are seeking out new frontiers and this is Bob’s first jump ever. I wish Bob a thrilling ride and a soft landing and Simmaron continued success in their breakthrough research.

All proceeds will go to Simmaron Research Foundation – just a long stones throw from the jump area.  With Bob’s neuro-immune issues and their neuro-immune research focus, supporting  Simmaron is a natural for Bob.

About 10:30 PST, 12:30 CST, 1:30 EST  Bob will be stepping up to the door, looking out and then – whoosh out he will go – falling 13,000 feet for ME/CFS….Its a ‘no-crash’ day.
